Texas Wildflower Shoot

I took the above photograph in a field of wildflowers at Baylor University State Park, in Brenham, Texas at the end of March 2012. My NIKKOR 70-300mm zoom lens created a great depth of field effect in this image. The depth of field effect in photography can help to emphasize your subject while de-emphasizing your foreground and background. Even though the depth of field de-emphasized the foreground and background they contribute to the mood and artistic value of the photograph. The out of focus areas give the flowers and the tree in the background a somewhat painterly look.

For an in-depth explanation of Depth-of-Field see Wikipedia.
